  • Introduction

    Amongst the leading causes of morbidity and mortality in the world, sepsis occupies one of the dominant positions. In many countries more people are hospitalized each year with sepsis than with a heart attack. Each year this syndrome causes more deaths than prostate cancer, breast cancer, and HIV/AIDS combined. Increasing incidence and mortality of sepsis is observed: the number of sepsis patients hospitalized in the last 10 years has doubled; between one third and one half of sepsis patients dies.

    A key problem in the sepsis management is its early diagnosis. This problem is actual both in gynecology and obstetrics and in surgery.

    Postpartum endometritis is the most common (40%) postpartum complication. The peculiarity of its clinical course is a high prevalence (10-40%) of obliterated atypical forms, characterized by a disproportion between the general reaction and severity of the local pathological process. The high proportion of the obliterated forms of postpartum endometritis increases the importance of additional methods of diagnosis. But most of the existing modern laboratory and instrumental methods of analysis are representative only when the pathological processes have clinical manifestations. That is why it is necessary to improve and to expand the arsenal of the modern methods of diagnosis of postpartum complications, especially the septic ones, at an early stage of their development. This special issue is to improve the dissemination of advanced research in the area of new methods for the diagnostic of sepsis and purulent-septic complications in medicine (gynecology and obstetrics, surgery etc), methods of their treatment and prevention. Original research papers are solicited in any aspect of innovative sepsis and purulent-septic complications diagnostics and treatment.
